Best MLB team stacks for DFS on Sunday, July 11

We go over some of the best MLB teams to stack for DFS on DraftKings for Sunday’s main slate.

MLB: Kansas City Royals at Cleveland Indians David Richard-USA TODAY Sports

Every team is scheduled to play in the final day before the All-Star Break and just like the teams, DFS players can head into the break with some momentum. All the action will be played in the afternoon, and the main slate on DraftKings features 11 games.

Sometimes with a plus-matchup on the MLB game slate, we get an opportunity to slot multiple players from the same team into our DFS lineups. You can learn more about MLB DFS strategy, including team stacks, here.

Here, we’ll break down three of the best team stacks for the MLB slate on Sunday, July 11th.

Royals vs. Indians, 1:10 p.m.

Whit Merrifield $4,800
Carlos Santana $4,200
Andrew Benintendi $3,400

Kansas City Royals catcher Salvador Perez would be a part of this stack, but he left with a back injury in Saturday’s game. Still, this group of hitters are extremely affordable especially going up against Indians’ starter Eli Morgan. Morgan has not gone more than five innings in any of his five starts this season and allowed at least three runs in each game. He also has given up eight home runs and has an 8.44 ERA, so this is a good spot for the Royals to have a big performance.

Yankees vs. Astros, 2:10 p.m.

Yordan Alvarez ($5,700)
Jose Altuve ($5,200)
Yuli Gurriel ($4,800

When you go after the Houston Astros hitters in a stack, you are going to pay quite the price. Carlos Correa is unlikely to be in the lineup as he continues to battle through an illness. They will go against New York Yankees starter Jameson Taillon, who has a 5.05 ERA through a significant sample size of 16 starts. Combine this lineup and a pitcher with below-average numbers, and Houston is worth the expense.

Braves vs. Marlins, 1:10 p.m.

Freddie Freeman ($6,200)
Ozzie Albies ($5,500)
Dansby Swanson ($4,700)

The Atlanta Braves lineup suffered a punch to the gut on Saturday when they lost Ronald Acuna Jr. to a torn ACL. Atlanta should be motivated to fire back with a fantastic offensive performance and head into the break on the right foot. This is an important game for the Braves to show they can contend for a division title in the second half of the season without their best player. Atlanta’s top hitters are pricy, but they are going to have a big game.
